cheney joins us and john bolton joins us. ambassador bolton, our secretary of state is trying to broker a cease-fire. apparently it hasn't worked. what do you think she could offer to hamas or is offering for their promise to stop sending rockets into israel? >> i think it's very concerning. although president obama publicly has been very supportive this past week of israel's right to defend itself. i think there is a lot going on behind the scenes particularly efforts by the united states and others to persuade the netanyahu government not to go in with ground forces into the gaza strip because of the obvious ramifications. having watched the efforts by the israeli military to destroy the rocket launching areas to find the longer range missiles that were supplied by iran, i don't think they are nearly ready yet. if the pressure on israel to agree to a cease-fire is intense as it looks from the outside, i think that a cease-fire is agreed to in the next few days, it's going to be very temporary. what is really at issue here is a huge strategic shift. this is not really hamas versus isra

. i'm joined by john bolton. former ambassador to the u.n. and a fox news contributor. what do you think about that. >> when i first heard that story i thought i must be reading something from the onion, or mad magazine, and to be honest i still don't believe it. i don't believe even the obama administration would send valerie jarrett to negotiate with the iranians. not that i put it past them, i just find it very hard to believe. martha: apparently she was born in iran to american parents, her father worked in a hospital there. could that be a reason to, you know, sort of think that she might be a person that would be able to sort of bridge a relationship there, or at least in a very initial kind of informal way start to have some discussions or make arrangements for further, higher level discussions? >> well, my understanding is she left when she was five. unless she is a very precocious lady i don't think her experiences between age zero and age five qualify her to negotiate with the iranians. moreover, it is presidential malpractice to put what by all accounts is one of the pre

it right now, steve. that's for sure. ambassador john bolton is here, the former ambassador to the u.n., quite a roundup that steve provided for us. how do we get answers here? >> we won't get them from the administration. you saw from those political operatives that they have talking about this that their response to criticism is ad hominem arguments. they are not capable of responding. the tragedy on september 11 was a reflection of a failed obama administration world view, a view that the arab spring had brought democrat to libya in the middle-east, generally, that al qaeda is defeated and the war on terrorism is over. that's what led to the decisions well before the attack in benghazi. not to give enhanced security despite repeated requests from the people on the ground. that's why that cable that fox news came up with that katherine has reported, should have been a fire bell in the night at the state department when it came back to washington, almost four weeks before the attack. >> i have relied on the great reporting by katherine herig and jennifer grif and i know fox news in
